4 out of 5 stars (4 out of 5)
Pros: These are very smoothly textured with a lovely, almost seamless join. The point is not super pointy but it's pointier than the other bamboo needles I've used. I also like the cable quite a lot - it's flexible and supple and I think it's pretty super cool that they have the length printed on the cable. The way the cable and needle connect is pretty neat, too. It reminds me of how my stirring attachments connect to my Kitchen-Aid mixer. Cons: Dude, these needles are long. The wood parts are longer than the wood sections on any other needle I have and the metal connector adds another inch to them. And that's without the cable attached. The metal connector on the cable adds another half inch, putting the total size of these needles at 5-1/2 long. [I know there are those out there with a preference towards longer needles but for me, I tend to go for shorter - not only does it feel a bit less awkward in my hand but the way I hold the needle, the typical 5-1/4 needles are just the right size to hit my palm to where I end up bending down the cable at the join. It's not a hard bend and doesn't damage the cable, but it can be a bit of a hassle to fight against. It is possible, though, that the extra length on the Addis will make them long enough where I won't have the cable bend problem occur so I'll only have to see how tired my hand gets holding them when knitting for long periods of time.] My second problem here is that the cables don't swivel. I think if the cable swiveled, these would be my perfect needle, regardless of length.
